The FieldSmart FxDS Tower Access Chassis is a low maintenance fiber distribution panel for use in a 19” or 23” (482.60 mm or 584.20 mm) frame. Designed to provide the user with superior fiber access and craft-friendly, radius protected fiber management for routing and deploying fiber jumpers. The Tower Access Chassis provides a modular solution which can grow from 12 to 36 fibers (6-18 duplex adapters) of test, radius and physical fiber protection to connect the Base Band Unit (BBU) to the radio antennas, while providing up to 50 feet of slack storage.
